Okay so its not a really nothing to do day hahaha isn’t there always something to do? I was just stating that I had no track meet or food shopping so no where to be or errands to run. …but yes laundry and its about done. and supper will be cooking soon enough. I had a nice morning enjoying my morning coffee with my daughter before she had to go to work so now the house is quiet clean and Miss Abigail is happily sleeping. I have not adult colored in awhile I may try doing that later and watch another episode of 13 Reasons Why. it’s another chilly May day so nothing outside. Mother Nature is just not wanting it to feel like Spring our way she is a bit moody so what else can you do but make the best of it right? at least the flowers are blooming and beautiful. well going to do a few things enjoy your day.
It;s been a long week and its only Tues, so hate that feeling .. My Son gad a track meet against their rivalry team and someone had to loose unfortunately it was my Son’s team. The team took it really hard , I feel so bad for them. I want to say to him it’s only a game but to them it’s so much more. it’s their life who they are okay they think it is ..I think that there is to much pressures of all kinds. on kids now and I not saying we put to much pressure as parents I am talking about other kids society sports them trying to prove themselves to others , wanting to be in as I quote . If you read my last post I had wrote about the controversy over the new show based on the book 13 Reasons Why on Netflix about teenage suicide. Its such an eye opener I am on episode 9 and I am amazed how I can relate some of the things that I have seen in my kids school its so unreal. Yes I know we where all teenagers once we had good days bad days we had breakups bad friends all that but in this new world of technology I think its out of control what kids can do with it and sadly really push someone to the point of suicide Just by one press of a button on their cell phones,,.we know bullying is out of hand , kids do not care there mind are so wrapped up in material things okay sorry not all but a good amount of kids and this show/book I believe scares people because this is a real fear and people are afraid to see this .I do agree if your child has depression they should not watch this or watch with an adult because it does not in my eye glamorize suicide maybe in a teenagers so watch talk about it . I know one thing keep the communication open with your kids no matter if they push away just keep it open.
On Sunday my Son had his Junior class Auction to raise money for their class for senior year I didn’t go because I really didn’t get the whole auction thing and I figure you should have a good amount of money . He was helping out . So I did some food shopping for his track meet …Gatorade and and snacks when I came home here sat this beautiful set of dishware a China set on our kitchen table, my husband said he bid for these thinking I would like them ….yes I do.. I love them , their so fragile and beautiful .My husband said he was proud looking when he walked in with them . I wanted to cry because there was so many things after I found out he could of tried for that he liked but did not. I went into his room and gave him the biggest hug and he smiled and I just did not want to let go 🙂 another beautiful moment.. so this is my photo Monday. 🙂

Myself Crazy…… ughh how I feel this week I do not think one day warm and sunny then 3 days cold and raining does not help . It was one of those weeks when I feel like I’m running in two different directions. Thankfully it’s Friday. So now everything is done and the house is quiet Miss Abigail is doing what she does best on quiet rainy days snuggled up and sleeping it away… until everyone gets home . I think I am going to check out that new series that is based on a book. that is on Netflix it actually a book that my daughter read back when she was in 7th grade and now she is 21 and is reading it again its called 13 Reasons Why .. there is a big controversy in my part of the globe I do not know how far this controversy stretches to the rest of the globe but society is saying it glamorizes teenage suicide and gives the teenager the idea that if they have a problem this is an easy way out. my daughter said she believes people are getting the wrong message that what she gets out of it is that the main character was so bullied mistreated and had know one who she felt she could tell who could help her friend wise and other kids went along with the abusing and that more teenagers and adults should learn more about bullying and issues teenagers go through and more now in this society from this book/series how to see the signs of bulling or abuse to help someone if you witness this to stop being so hateful to others you never know what someone is going through. Okay I can agree with that so I decided I will watch it and see what I see being that I do have a daughter who suffered from bulling … when she was in High School yes my now 21 yr old and thankfully was strong enough to tell me and now she is doing well and is a very stronger person that I am so proud of.
Now my Son is in High School a Junior and the pressures and the games girls or should say a girl that is playing ,the mind games with my son who is not into drama like his sister says it like it is doesn’t like to be lied to okay yes who does right… is heart is so big he respects girls he will be nice to anyone so there are days he is in the slumps yes he gets tired from sports school work but the kids and girls play a big part of those slumps so I like to keep a close eye on him He does know his dad and I and sister are here at anytime time to talk to. Sadly this day in age these kids do not have it easy peer pressure is at a all time high and they will not talk to someone and will take it upon them self to handle it I quote… so this when you have to become a detective not easy but its possible. so will see when I watch this I will let you know in between reading the book I showed you in my past post ..its good but so far its going by the movie which usually does not happen which I was hoping would be more detailed but I will see and get back to you on that as well.
I love this window… usually I sit to the side of it in my comfy chair and I write , read , do adult coloring because its so bright and sunny and warm So lately Miss Abigail as decided she likes my chair so she is taking a nice afternoon nap in it and I am sitting on the couch and I am head on now with the window and I guess I should thank her hahaha the view is even more beautiful and the sun is bright and I still can feel the warmth of the sun. I guess sometimes looking at things in a different angle is a good thing .We sometimes get so custom to looking at things in the same way that we loose sight of what we could be missing . nice to shake things up a bit . even if its just looking out my window in a different view can make you think.
It’s been one of those days where there is no hurry to get up but you do. there is no plans just the usual up keep of house work. weather up and down sunny then cloudy chilly then warm. So went and grabbed a coffee with my daughter . Then just relaxed outside till supper so yes just a whatever kinda day. Actually nice for a change. now waiting for my son to get home okay that never changes…. so I guess I will grab my book and do some reading.
I was reminded this afternoon with my daughter that it was May Day when we took a ride into town this morning and saw the local Elementary kids with their teachers pushing a wagon filled with May Day baskets. May Day basket you ask well that was a basket or a cup designed with fresh beautiful spring flowers and notes or pictures…a celebration of Spring. in other cultures theirs music bright color pole with ribbons that you dance around. .. a may pole , you ate cake. What I remember was making the baskets and going to neighborhood houses and giving a basket to an older or shut in person and then random houses. I did it as a child as well as my kids I always thought it was a fun time my kids thought so too. It was nice to see the smiles on peoples faces when they found them at their doors.
